With this short news post the staff wants to inform you that points for both X265 benchmark presets have been re-enabled. Although the benchmark in its current form is still vulnerable, it is possible to identify false results manually. The staff has indicated it will handle the X265 benchmark results with extra scrutiny in the coming days.
Benchmark developer Havli has also taken the initiative to work on fixing the vulnerability both in public and in private to HWBOT. We look forward to the new version which will of course be enforced for valid submissions.
Happy benching everyone!
